welcome to the 

[brooklyn art's collective]

a creative community for: connecting | collaboration | workshops & more.

our mission

Formerly known as The NYC Women's Art Collective, we decided to rebrand to The [Brooklyn Art's Collective] to further our dedication to inclusivity within our community of artists and creators.


Our mission is to encourage, strengthen and ignite artists who are so bravely in pursuit of their dreams. Committed to the spiritual, emotional, and physical health of all, we are focused on creating a  judgment-free, safe space for creators to connect, explore, and share their art at every stage of creation. We believe in the value of companionship, and the power of collaboration over competition.


In previous years,  we focused on building community through our monthly meetings, weekly artist features, and supporting creator events. This year we're shifting focused on how to best educate and guide others by teaching workshops here in brooklyn. Starting with our Kid's weekend workshop coming up this October. See below for more details.
